A Word from Pastor Tharp...

My dad, now with the Lord, said in a sermon at my church, “Missions is the most selfless expression of love and obedience to the Lord a local church can demonstrate.” We cannot underestimate the potential impact a mission-focused church can have not only on the foreign field, but in church planting and in God calling out from among us servants for the mission field.

Our mission theme is the word COMMITTED. Oh, how we need people committed to PRAY to GIVE and to GO. It may be the Lord will touch the heart of a young man or girl to surrender to be a missionary. Perhaps He will call you, in spite of all of your plans and goals. God is asking for first place in each of our lives. We must be committed to do as He bids us all to do. We must be committed to pray. The needs and opportunities have never been greater but we must pray the Lord of the harvest that He would send forth more laborers into the harvest fields. We must be committed to give. We must increase our mission partners and increase the amount of all monthly support. This should be our passion all the year long! More for the cause of missions.

“The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.”- Hudson Taylor

Committed: To Pray- To Give- To Go!

Theme Verse: Acts 20:24 "But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God."

If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.
— C.T. Studd
In the vast plain to the north I have sometimes seen, in the morning sun, the smoke of a thousand villages where no missionary has ever been — Robert Moffat, who inspired David Livingstone
If a commission by an earthly king is considered an honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice? — David Livingstone
